People who buy expensive horses, to have them trained by a professional, and ride the horse at the level the horse is trained at, and then as the horse progresses (through the trainer) the owner/rider says "I got (insert name here) to give me a really nice canter!! I've been working with him on it for a while now." Well news flash sweetheart, you ain't a thing without your instructor. Let's put you on my 1'500 dollar crazy horse without your trainer and see how you do!

Ha ha good one! I love it when my little crossbreed places over those ones!

Barn Drama (someone mentioned) is the worst!!

One barn I was at everyday it was gossip about someone, then the BO would be on your case for nothing...they just loved the drama! It was like they were stuck at 13 forever...

I have to agree with all of your guys pet pives
Here are some of mine

1. Breeding more horses...we have so many horses in the world. I am not against it, its just that we have soooooo many horses and other animals that need homes.
2. People who think their smarter then you.
3. people who show of.
4. My horse is better then you.
5. People who beat their animals

Oh my gosh, I have so many rider/horse people pet-peeves!!!


  1. People who think they are better than you because their horse is better/more expensive than yours.
  2. Riders who let their horse ride around with their noses sticking out--I know its probably from a lack of knowledge but STILL!!
  3. People who can't clean their horse's stalls properly.
  4. Riders who have NO arena manners and feel the need to run into your horse.
  5. Riders who stare at their horses head/neck/shoulder as if they are about to fall off.
  6. Riders who spur their horse non stop!!
  7. People who give their horse a sweaty ride and shove it in their stall and don't take the time to cool it off.
  8. Riders who sit cross-legged in their saddle--especially western saddles across the horn--I don't care how bomb-proof your horse is, that's an accident waiting to happen!
  9. People who only ride their stalled horses 3 times a week and don't bother with turnout or lunging.
  10. People who wear spurs because everyone else is when they have no business wearing them!

People who come running when I'm grooming my horse, get their horse and get saddled up so we can ride together! I actually have my horse boarded at a friends house next door -- still haven't gotten that barn built yet -- I have to squeeze in time while the kid is in school to have any private time for ground work with my horse.

Something that happened today-

When I was getting ready to ride, I realized I forgot to put my tall boots on. This girl offered to hold my horse for me. Thanks! As I was putting my boots on I hear the *clinkclinkclink* of a girth. Okay, she's probably just tightening my girth for me. It was pretty loose. When I go back out to the aisle, she says "Your saddle was waaaaaaay too far back. I put it forward and tightened your girth." So I was half right. But now the saddle is basically on her withers! People don't understand that the saddle is supposed to be moved out of the way of the horse's shoulder blades.

So my pet peeves are:
People who think they're smarter and "fix" something, making it wrong.
People who think saddles go on the horse's shoulders.
